Description

Benjamin Godard was born in Paris in 1849, and studied violin and composition at the Conservatoire de Paris. In 1887 he was appointed a Professor of the same establishment. He composed many pieces, many of which have now fallen into neglect. His ‘Suite de Trois Morceaux’ is well known by flautists, and his opera Jocelyn still receives occasional performances. This Aubade was originally written for violin and cello, and is arranged here for flute quartet. In two distinct movements, the first is slow and dreamy whilst the second is more sprightly. All the instruments share the melodies, often swapping roles in the ensemble.
